Don't be so harsh on the dad without the full story. She says she chatted with her dad, and I highly doubt she would begin the conversation with the beauty school comment. So you can assume that they must've been holding a decent conversation, since there is also no implication that it was a hostile conversation besides the comment. Now, with that in mind, is it hard to believe he was joking? All you can assume from the FML is that he looked her over then made the comment. What was his expression? Was he smiling? Maybe smirking? Personally, if my daughter told me she was going to beauty school and I felt like teasing her, I would say the same thing as a joke. But in the eyes of the FML community, I'd be a prick and should be disowned by my daughter because they don't actually know the full relationship that we'd have, only that we haven't talked to each other in a long time. Rather than taking in consideration that the OP posted this situation with lack of details to make it FML worthy. Think before you post ranting advice on an incomplete story.
Well, 65. ANY father should NOT 'joke' like that. I personally think that you should never degrade a girl like that even if your joking. Not being mean, but girls Are very sensitive about beauty and should never be joked about, I know one too many girls that have terrible self image problems because of 'jokes'.
78- Lol, what? You have no idea what the overall context of his joke was, only that it's on FML. With that incomplete information, you assume it's degrading, when you have no idea what the full story is. Read my comment above if you forgot my argument. And seriously, give me a break with sensitivity nonsense. For starters, stereotyping does not help your claim. Second, self image is just that: your opinion of yourself. If you and your friends believe jokes are too hazardous to how you view yourselves, maybe you should focus on possibly controlling your own opinions of yourself rather than letting society do it for you.
Good thing you're trying. Keep it up, show your dad what you become later on in life and become successful.(:
Your dad is an ass. Doesn't he realize that insulting you, is insulting himself? You come from his genes?
you can tell he's not good at talking to his daughter maybe u should see him more often so he will have a little more practice saying the right thing. then again maybe u don't see him that often because of his insensitivity...
